This was part of our tour of the Holy Land. It was an Oasis (water, plants) in the dessert. The place where David hid from King Saul. Ein Gedi is the name of the local goat the lives the area. Some of our tour group got to see some, I did not. We took a short walk (partially shaded which in a dessert is a good thing) to the lower half of the water fall. The pathway is paved, so it is a fairly easy walk. I apparently there is a much longer hike to the top of the falls. There were a lot of caves that could be seen in the cliff walls that would make this a good hiding place for David and his men. If you have been to other parks you may find the lower falls nothing spectacular to see, but it was an attraction with the locals who took advantage of enjoying the water on a hot day.

There’s lots of trails to explore. We took the 1 hour walk to David’s Waterfall, a very green area in the middle of the desert.

It was an oasis but it was pretty dry walk to one small waterfall. The highlight was catching an imposing wild male ibex on camera with his brood. Has all the facilities.
